Rival Teams Say Jazz Now Open To "Listen" To Trade Offers On Donovan Mitchell

The Utah Jazz have apparently changed their stance on potentially shipping Donovan Mitchell out of Salt Lake City. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Jazz are now open to "listening" to potential trade offers for the star guard. 

As Woj noted, Utah had been unwilling to entertain any inquiries on Mitchell. But Utah's general manager Justin Zanik admitted that "change is inevitable in the NBA... Things evolve in the NBA, so I couldn't sit here and say anybody is [untouchable]."

Nonetheless, he did add that the Jazz have no plans to trade Mitchell. And if ever Utah does strongly consider it, the price would be steep.

This news comes after reports came out that Jazz president Danny Ainge doesn't believe Mitchell is capable of being the no. 1 guy on a championship contender. 

The Jazz already traded Mitchell's All-Star partner Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves. They also lost head coach Quin Snyder, who stepped down from his role this offseason.
